Even the most intense boxing session can’t do a number on Adriana Lima’s enviable hair. The supermodel—who’s all about the post-workout selfie—has luscious, flowing locks that seemingly withstand anything, and it’s all thanks to her secret beauty hack that features everyone’s favorite superfood.

In a recent interview with Into the Gloss, the Brazilian beauty revealed that she uses avocado in her hair to keep it shiny (is there anything avocados can’t do?!).

“In Brazil, we’d take our conditioner or hair mask and mix it with avocado and put that in our hair for a treatment,” says Lima. “It leaves your hair super shiny.”

Seems like the model is all about easy hacks. From using honey in her coffee to curb sugar cravings to starting the day with a simple, three-ingredient smoothie, Lima’s go-to hair treatment is more proof that the Victoria’s Secret model is pretty low-key when it comes to her healthy habits.

And if you’re hesitant to rub your fave toast topping all over your head, don’t be: “Avocado doesn’t have a strong scent, so you won’t smell funny. I promise,” says Lima. Just add this to the list of millions of benefits from the green super-fruit.
